It’s about time schools, and hopefully parents, rethink the quality of food they are feeding their kids. A recent study showed improvement in test scores of students, a decrease in illness, and dependency on medications. Proper nutrition can go a long way can’t it?
Eleven-year-old students’ test results were analyzed by researchers from Oxford and Essex Universities. In English, 3-6% more students achieved the required standard, and 3-8% more reached the standard in science. Nationally, the number of students passing has been static for six years.
School work was not the only area where students improved. A full 15% decrease was seen in students taking authorized time off from school. Most of these absences are related to sickness, so a clear improvement in health was seen. Children with asthma required their inhalers less often.
It’s easy to go back to basics with the “you are what you eat” analogy, as these results fall right in line with these results. Quality nutrition will contribute to improved brain function, nervous system function, and overall health and wellness.
It would be amazing to see the effects of regularly adjusted children in schools over a three year span. I would hypothesize that we would see improved health, wellness, function as their nervous system improves. The results of this type of study could show the amazing benefits of being subluxation free, and show that there are options for better health without drugs/medications.
